A Chance to Die is a vibrant portrayal of Amy Carmichael, an Irish missionary and writer who spent fifty–three years in south India without furlough. There she became known as “Amma,” or “mother,” as she founded the Dohnavur Fellowship, a refuge for underprivileged children.
Amy’s life of obedience and courage stands as a model for all who claim the name of Christ. She was a woman with desires and dreams, faults and fears, who gave her life unconditionally to serve her Master.
Bringing Amma to life through inspiring photos and compelling biographical narrative, Elisabeth Elliot urges readers to examine the depths of their own commitment to Christ.
‘Amy Carmichael was one of Northern Ireland’s true treasures. She has been one of our heroes since our parents told us her story as children. Her life, her songs and legacy of faith brought the truth and beauty of Jesus to countless children. We are honored to recommend Elizabeth Elliot’s book to you.’ ~ Keith and Kristyn Getty
